Today is Holocaust Remembrance day. It's a time to honor and remember the people in our family, in our country, and around the world who fell victim to one of the world's most devastating chapters in history. It's a time to not only reflect on the past like it's a page in a history book, but also to reflect upon how we can prevent this from happening in our current day.

And while we should take a moment of silence to reflect, I'd like to also bring up some music by a sort of punk klezmer band- Daniel Kahn and the Painted Birds. His music, as described on the band's website, is "a mixture of Klezmer, radical Yiddish song, political cabaret and punk folk." He's got some edgy punk vibes in some of his songs, particularly on the album Partisans and Parasites as well as some beautiful folk on Bad Old Songs. He's got some songs in Yiddish, German and I think some Russian.  He's a bit radical when it comes to his political views, but his music is worth checking out and gets you to think.

Let's start with a beautifully dark one titled "Birkenau," which I think needs no explanation. But this seems appropriate for today. But please check out all of his other songs on youtube as well! There's a wide variety there from super edgy punk to soft folk to jumpin' Klezmer.


Here's a thing to consider this weekend: Talk to your parents or grandparents about the holocaust and how it affected them and reflect on what similarities you can parallel from the past to today.
  • Listening to: Klezmer accordion
  • Reading: too much into it.
  • Watching: Too many crime documentaries
  • Playing: pretend
  • Eating: stuff I probably shouldn't
  • Drinking: smoothies

Ah I'm doing fine and I have been busy on my end. Thanks for asking. ^^ Been also a long time since I commissioned you before when you did some of those awesome taur pics that I really do love especially your style. Just curious, are you open for commissions at this moment? Been wanting to commission you again for some time now. ^^
